Alicia’s health condition

Back in 2019, she took a two-month leave from 6ABC. She wished she had slowed down and listened to her body. When her husband and daughter were sleeping in the room, she popped out of bed at 7 a.m. to do laundry and get coffee.

While she was going down quietly looking down to follow the light from her smartphone, she hit her head on the bathroom door. It became worse as she had to take medical leave for two months.

As per Alicia, she saw stars briefly that morning on the cruise ship but felt as if she could power through. After that, she searched for ice to keep down the swelling. She said,

“I was thinking more about the aesthetics,”

After few weeks, three-quarters of the way through her 4 p.m. newscast on Jan. 16, Vitarelli started to feel dizzy. Likewise, she saw black spots before her eyes and had trouble reading the teleprompter. She was taken to the emergency room at Pennsylvania Hospital.

Her hemoglobin levels were unusually low and prescribed iron infusions. Similarly, a month later her hemoglobin levels rose and she felt more energetic. But her dizziness and the stuffy head feeling got worse.

It was found that her ears and sinuses remained full of fluid, somehow unable to drain properly through vessels called the eustachian tubes.
